Three members of the Tonganoxie High girls basketball team have been honored for their individual success this season with selections to the 2013 All-Kaw Valley League team.

Senior Jenny Whitledge and junior Katelyn Waldeier each earned first-team selections after leading the team in scoring and rebounding all season. Whitledge, a four-time All-KVL selection, averaged a double-double in her final year with 16 points and 11.4 rebounds per game. She leaves the program as the school's all-time leading rebounder and ranks second in scoring. Waldeier averaged 9.9 points and 8.4 rebounds per game in her first season as a starter.

Senior Hannah Kemp was named an honorable mention. The four-year varsity player led the team in assists for the second straight season, recording 83 this season. She was an honorable mention last season.

On the boys side, freshman Jack Dale earned first-team honors in his first high school season. Dale led the Chieftains in scoring in nearly every game this season, averaging 14 points per game. He led the team in several other offensive categories, including field goals made (95), three-pointers made (25), free throws made (79) and free throw percentage (81.4).
